Good Morning Brilliant Butterflies!

If you thought that they were daffodils then you were correct!

What are these flowers?



Please can you choose a non-fiction book/books either from home or Oxford Owl website.


**Today, I’d like you to find and share a book/books that have a contents page and an index. **

Unfortunately books for Reception age children don’t always include these features so you might have to look at books for age 5-6 year olds. Your adult could read the book but I need you to keep your eyes open and search for them.


Key questions of the day...

Does your book have a contents page?

Would you find a contents page at the beginning or the end of the book?

What is the contents page for?

Does your book have an index?

What does the index help you do?

What is special about the way that the index is ordered?

How does this help you?

Where could you find out about......?

If you want to find out about... how could you do it?

What’s the best place to look for information about...?



Brain warm up: Choose a way to warm up your brain by recalling Phase 3 sounds: You could use your own flahcards or the PhonicsPlay website ‘Flashcard Speed Trial’ or ‘A Giggling Grapheme’.


Phase 4 learning: Continue the sheets from yesterday. You need to read the words and circle the word that matches the picture. Complete one or two pages. You don’t have to print the sheets, you can just look at the picture, read the words and write down the word that is correct.

(Or if you prefer using the phonics games on the computer then find a phase 4 game to play)

If you would like more challenge then try writing sentences using some of these words.



Maths: Counting in equal groups

Follow the link below for today's Maths lesson.

You will need 12 objects for counting and 5 containers.


**Practice your sharing using your objects and containers**


**Or you could have a go at page one of the sheet below, sharing the mice between the owls. Cross off each mouse as you share it.**


**Complete sheet 2 and 3 if you want more challenge**


Follow the link below to access the Oak Academy Lesson ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears Story writing’


You will need a pencil, lined paper, your story map and a teddy talk partner. 


**Today, you will write the story 'Goldilocks and The Three Bears'**


I can't wait to read your stories!


Things to remember to be a good writer:

  • Think about your letter formation (use letter families poster)
  • Are there any phase 3 digraphs/digraphs you can use in the words? (You could use your phase 3 sound mat)
  • Any longer words, remember to chop them up into parts to make it easier to sound out for writing e.g. Gol-dee-locs
  • Finger spaces needed between each word
  • Remember to use capital letters for names e.g. Goldilocks


*If you want more challenge then, instead of using the sentences that the teacher suggests, you could stop the video and use your story map to write your own sentences. Also, instead of using the word bank, have a go at the words yourself! Try to use some story language e.g. Once upon a time, the End.*
